Being born and bred locally certainly has its advantages – I bring my strong country work ethic to my role and my recommendation for the best café, The Roses Café, has been truly tried and tested.
When I was young, I loved tap dancing before shifting gears and playing touch football. Now I love to dedicate my time to a number of community organisations and charities, including CanTeen, Rye Park Rural Fire Service, Rye Park Progress Association, Rye Park Land Managers Group and HeartKids.
My career in real estate has been truly rewarding, especially the sale of “Woolangubra”, which saw the elderly owners able to retire into town and it broke the Yass sale record at the time. An incredibly special result for the owners, who were over the moon, but also a special achievement for our team and demonstrated our client-focused approach.
I am humbled by how our team can make a difference in people’s lives and one of the most meaningful times was when we helped a family in Yass I knew from school. The bank was in the process of taking over the property and we were able to get the seller a result that far exceeded her expectations. Not only did it get the banks off her back, but the new owners adopted the family cat.
I am focused on my professional development and I take every opportunity to learn from my team, but especially from Clare who provides immense support and is great to bounce ideas off.
A significant moment in my career was taking my first trip to Queensland in 2019 to attend the Ray White Rural conference.
When I am not at work my favourite thing to do is to watch the sunset over Canberra at Mount Ainslie, but I also make sure anyone new to the region does a lap around Lake Burley Griffin and I highly recommend the Boorowa Irish Woolfest with the running of the sheep, plus a visit to The Roses Café of course.
